I can’t make this stuff up:
Friend 1: I’m really interested in going to law school. How do you like [Other Law School]?
Friend 1’s Friend: [Other Law School] is great, but I don’t know if it was the right choice in the end. I like DC but I’m not sure I would do it the same way if given the chance.
Friend 1: What would you have changed?
Friend 1’s Friend: I would have gone to Northeastern.
Then this happened:
Random person on the plane: What do you do in Boston?
Me: I’m in law school.
Random person on the plane: Oh, I’m an attorney at a firm in Boston. Where do you go to school?
Random person on the plane: That is great! Out of all of my past and present colleagues, the Northeastern Law grads are my favorite.
And one more:
Bouncer in Las Vegas: Where are you from?
Me: I live in Boston.
Bouncer in Las Vegas: What do you do there?
Me: I’m in law school at Northeastern.
Bouncer in Las Vegas: No way! My sister went there a few years ago. You still have that co-op program, right?
Me: Yea, I’m on co-op next semester.
Bouncer in Las Vegas: That’s definitely the raddest way to do law school. Way to go! If I was smart enough, I’d go to Northeastern and do the law school thing. But this gig is cool.
That NUSL connection got me to the front of the line.
